Photoshop is all the sudden freaking out on me. Colors are all over the place. Black bars across images. changed my preferences in the advanced settings of performance like I had read. Did not help. What is the deal

That sounds like you are seeing video driver bugs. And yes, we have responded to all the similar complaints, and updating the drivers almost always solves the problem.

Which version of Photoshop are you using?
What OS version are you using?

Make sure you have all the Photoshop updates (should be on 2015.1.1) and Camera Raw updates (should be on 9.3.1) installed.
Beyond that, yes, there are a number of driver issues in MacOS 10.11 that Apple is still working to solve.
